I grew up in Iowa eating corn fed beef - and believing it was the best beef around. Over the years I've strayed from beef, concerned about beef processing and cholesterol. Pure Beef has opened my eyes to the world of possibilities of a different kind of beef - grass fed beef grown and processed in humane, healthy ways. As an athlete, I'm looking for healthy ways to put protein and iron into my diet. After reading Pure Beef and trying some recipes, I have a renewed feeling about beef - and find I really like the unique flavor of grass fed beef. I love how the author describes various cuts of beef and creative ways of preparing it as the co-star of a meal. Pure Beef goes beyond traditional cookbooks to educate and provide a window into a world of healthy beef.
